Yes, hello gorgeous!

Friday is here again and with it comes a lovely round-up of internet favorites and a very inspired fancies. Do you ever have those weeks of blogging when you stop and say, "Wow, this has been really fun!"? This has been one of those weeks for me and you are certainly to thank for that. I'm thrilled with all the new faces I'm seeing around here and the new followers on pinterest and twitter. For me, it's never been about the numbers and never will be. It's about the genuine connections and relationships that are formed and nurtured through blogging. From me to you, my sincerest thank you!


Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere made her television debut this week sharing her summer must-haves on the Today Show. Click here to see the video if you missed it live.

Thanks to Sarah and Mackenzie I was introduced to a new favorite blog this week, Wish Wish Wish. It's a style blog unlike any other.

Another of my favorite blogging ladies, Mrs. Lilien, appeared on the Today Show this week, as well, for some cocktail mixing with Hoda and Kathie Lee. Watch the video here and buy her just-released Cocktail Swatchbook here!

IFB shared a great article this week about making your twitter content stick in a world where literally everyone is speaking in 140 characters. Great tips for bloggers!


Today's fancies theme is "outfit crush" - recreate an outfit that you've loved on a celebrity, a blogger, whomever! I pinned the inspiration photo on the right a while back and when I found out about this week's theme I immediately went to that photo. No surprise, Emily is my inspiration.
